What I Wish I’d Known Before I Did My Garage Epoxy Floor

Trust the curing times shown on the can!   We ended up doing our garage epoxy floor in the middle of summer when it was 90+ degrees outside.  I looked at the time it would take the epoxy to cure and found that we should have plenty of time to get it all down thinking those were probably conservative approximations anyway.  Well it turns out they are not, and once the epoxy starts setting up it is game over.  You are not getting any further with that bucket of epoxy.  We were able to rush and get that portion finished before it had basically cured into a block in our paint tray.

    When using the paint chips it’s also a good idea to use an old Parmesan cheese container to put them in. Then you just shake the container instead so trying to throw them and not get a bunch in one place. After awhile you will not be able to tell your floor turned into two different colors. Good job in your explanation. I would also say USE a sealer. I didn’t the first time. Good news is you can go over it with a new coat in several years I’d yours starts to show wear and scratches.
